Cybercriminals targeting the financial services sector are focusing more of their attacks on application programming interfaces (APIs). At the same time, different development teams working on multiple applications often use disparate tool sets, pointing to the increasing importance of industry standards. F5 works closely with financial services customers worldwide to implement and secure the APIs driving open banking.
What sets Shape and F5 apart is F5’s ability to capture high fidelity data from our position in front of millions of mission-critical customer applications combined with the sophisticated AI-assisted analytics platform from Shape. By integrating Shape and F5, we are executing on our vision to create an advanced set of security capabilities that can handle today’s most sophisticated attacks.
The future of security rests on telemetry that is more than technical data points picked out of packets. It requires a holistic view of interactions from client to application to behavior. Machine learning requires enormous amounts of data to establish and recognize patterns. This is why programmable proxies are such a critical part of an advanced security approach.
